Could we ask our Chief Minister if he is aware of the NT processes involving a new sporting facility?
http://www.sportandrecreation.nt.gov.au/about-us/master-plan#! Because the process for the propose park, is back of front.
Hopefully the demise of Tony Abbot will make him realise that democracy = consultation.

Instead of using established parks, why not ask Aborigines’ communities if they would like some of their land being used for recreational / sporting purposes? After all our government was pushing for a radioactive dump on Aborigines’ land!
A sporting complex would be more appropriated and of good Public Relations.

Prompted by the concern of some residents on the project, I wrote to the council for clarification, as follows:
“I write as a concerned resident about the proposed closure of one of the park of Head St. This park would be for the use of a club only.
I heard the rumours and I would like an yes or no answer before I go further.”
The council replied:
“I’m not sure which park you are referring to. Council is currently looking at the possibility of installing a new athletics track at Rhonda Diano oval however this is only at the design and feasibility stage.
“If the project was to go ahead the facility would not be for exclusive use for any specific club, the facility would be for the Alice Springs community to use.”
Hopefully we will have an open public consultation before the project goes ahead, because I cannot see how the facility will be for all if it is fenced.

@ Recent visitor of Alice
You are very correct and this have been said over and over. Every time I read such comment this song come to my head:
I talk to the trees
But they don’t listen to me
I talk to the stars
But they never hear me
The breeze hasn’t time
To stop and hear what I say
I talk to them all in vain

I hope that the last bit will be coming soon:
But suddenly my words
Reach someone else’s ear
At someone else’s heart strings too
I tell you my dreams
And while you’re listening to me
I suddenly see them come true


Tree death and the challenge of heatwaves
Maskat: We used to look after our footpath until the Council told us they were taking over … with a rise in the rates of course.
As for: “Generally council should also make sure that pathways are actually available to people who try to walk, ride, have prams or are in wheelchairs” – try to go with a pram and toddlers in Brown and Priest Streets.

James T Smerk: Could you develop your comment by explaining why it would have been better for Alice Springs with Jessica?


Society stops crime, not the police
Spot on Dominico especially “appreciation and respect for Indigenous cultural values”.
If a quiz/survey was conducted on the basic knowledge regarding Aboriginal culture, how many of us will pass?
For fact I know some (quite a few) Europeans working for years with Aborigenes who still do not have basic knowledge of the culture / history / background of the people they served.
In this age there are no more excuses for asking: “Why didn’t we know? Why were we not told?”
